HI all, I have a jersey cow(Love) and a calf (Millie-she is 12weeks old). The calf is NOT Loves, she is due to calve in July. When I brought them home (together) Millie started nursing on Love. SO, for 2 months, Ive been seperating them. I dried off Love about 3 weeks ago. Tried putting them together a few times...but Millie is still trying to suck, and Love is letting her. I dont know what my options are here. If I let her suck, will that stimulate the milk to start up again? OR, will she just give up, if there is no milk left? Since its only been 3 weeks, I think there might still be at least a little milk left? If so, I dont think she will give up? I saw in a mag a 'calf weaner'...any one use those? Wondering if that is the way to go? What about this....maybe putting something really distastful on Loves teats (something like ceyenne-but maybe that is too hot??)...something that will detour her from sucking after trying again? That would be nice, since I wouldnt have to order anything from a catalog and pay shipping. Any help would be greatly appriciated....getting tired of rotating animals since they cant be together Mary F.
